    I don't know where to put this but...




    I downloaded Super Mario Galaxy 2 and I was so exited to play it... After I extracted it I found it was a Ciso...

    I need to figure out how to convert it back to a ISO so I can play it... I looked on Google and other places... But I can't find anything with my problem... Can someone help me?

    I saw about the Wii Backup Manager... But when I read this



    Quoted from http://gbatemp.net/t153328-iso-to-ciso-converter?&st=30, I got scared because all my games are in my hard drive... and before you say: "If you do lose your games just get them on your hard drive from your computer all over again." I don't have them on my computer... I deleted them because I needed more space on my computer for other reasons...

    Strange...I've used wii backup manager for quite a nice amount of games, and it never "hosed" my hard drive.

    But then again, I DO keep backups of my backups, so I'm probably protected by Murphy's law. [​IMG]

    But anyhow...I know 3 2 ways to convert .ciso to .iso files:

    1) wii game manager: it's exactly similar to wii backup manager (perhaps just a tiny bit less user-friendly), so it will probably work too
    EDIT: wait...nevermind. I just quickly checked, and I couldn't find any .ciso option. so it's probably not going to do you any good.
    2) use uloader. That program uses .ciso files if you have a FAT32 drive. Just put it in USB:\ciso and run uloader.
    3) be more careful than that guy you're quoting and make sure you don't set wii backup manager to reformat your drive (my guess is that he mixed up WBFS-partitioning with .wbfs files)

    i believe that was referring to an older release of WBM, ive converted plenty of .cISO files to .ISO without problems and vise versa

    if you get scared of loosing anything u will be ok because you have the original disk to redump...................................... [​IMG]

    Use hermes iso2ciso.exe, it copys ios 2 ciso and ciso 2 iso, you drag and drop file onto it and it converts it, quick too.

    Code:

    yes you can, it does cISO2ISO ISO2cISO only though

    WBM does multi formats as well as HDD transfers but im guessing its for the more advance uses where as isotociso is a simple drag and drop for novices but yeah it will do the same sort of thing

    I'd say it is the other way round - a point and click "manager" gui is for the novies, whilst an advanced user will be happy using the cli.

    it was more of a sarcastic comment as he didnt know how to use WBM even tho its pretty simply to use
